And Ravens also, along with many other species of critters! I agree with Lonnie and Margaret!

>> Re Lonnie Somer's posting about the crow "playing", it is the height of egotism to think only humans play and to say we are anthropomorphizing if an animal or bird does something we think only we do. Over the last many decades there has been many studies to indicate that animals and birds (especially crows and raven) do thing we think only we do and seem to have some of the same "emotions". And if you get right down to it, humans "play" for many useful and practical reason.
